Hip Injuries We Specialize In Treating.
Discomfort, stiffness, clicking, or catching in the hips or groin area may be a sign of arthritis. This condition is very common, and it typically occurs as a result of normal wear and tear on the hip joint; however, genetics, injury, and excess weight can also play a role. As the cartilage that cushions the joint wears away, uncomfortable and damaging bone-on-bone contact occurs. As a result, inflammation, pain, and debilitation can develop. We offer a number of non-surgical and surgical treatment options for hip arthritis, including hip replacement, and we can help you find a solution that enhances your quality of life.

The leg and pelvic bones join to form the hip joint. The hip joint is very important because it stabilizes, balances, and moves the trunk and lower body. Hip osteoarthritis is inflammation of the hip joint. Wear and tear of cartilage with age is the main cause of hip osteoarthritis. An injury, obesity, and genetics may also be causes and contributing factors.

Hip Fractures, Breaks & Sprains
Hip injuries are common. Hip fractures, breaks, and sprains are injuries that require immediate medical attention. Delaying a diagnosis can make an injury worse. Common causes of a hip fracture, break, and sprain are:
- Motor vehicle accidents (MVAs)
- Sports accidents
Pain, stiffness, decreased range of motion, and the inability to stand or walk are symptoms. Severe pain is usually associated with a hip fracture or break. Osteoporosis is a bone disease that increases the risk of a hip fracture or break. Osteoporosis is the weakening of bone. Age, body type, body mass, gender, genetics, and hormone levels play a role in the development of osteoporosis. Postmenopausal women are most at risk.

Sometimes called “snapping hip syndrome,” tendonitis of the hip can be recognized by the snapping or clicking sound the hip makes when performing certain movements. You may also feel pain when bending over or lifting your knees towards your chest. This condition is caused by irritation or inflammation of the hip-flexor tendon, which crosses over the hip socket. Tendonitis may occur as a result of repetitive movement and overuse or as a result of improper stride or walking habits. Treatment options include rest, injections, anti-inflammatory medication, or physical therapy. In more severe cases, minimally invasive surgery can help alleviate discomfort and improve range of motion.
Hamstring & Thigh Muscle Injuries
Particularly common in athletes, thigh muscle injuries can include hamstring, quadriceps, adductor, and tendon strains, tears, and bruises. These tissues cross the hip and knee joints, so they generate significant force during activities that require running and jumping. In most cases, these concerns can be addressed with non-surgical treatment; however, complete tears (ruptures) may require surgery to reconnect the tendon or muscle ends. We utilize the latest techniques to shorten the recovery period and maximize results.
Dr. Tozzi is a caring, compassionate, and skilled surgeon who gave me my life back after performing a total hip replacement. I recommend Dr. Tozzi to everyone I share my story with.
Dr. Roehrig replaced my left hip and I am scheduled for the right. He was very compassionate in the way he understood and treated my condition. I will never go to another doctor.
A huge thank you to Dr. Glasser for diagnosing and treating an old injury. With her expertise, I was finally able to exercise and surf again without any pain. Highly recommended!
